Digital thermometers: the next thing that you'll soon struggle to buy right behind pasta, tinned food and, of course, loo roll. Coronavirus is well and truly making it hard for a lot of us to bag necessities, and the next thing we expect to happen is bulk buying of digital thermometers. If you don't yet own a thermometer – digital or not – it's probably a smart idea to buy one before the shortage, so that, if you do – god forbid – come down with a cough or shortness of breath, you can easily check your fever and keep an eye on your symptoms.

We've done our research and found the best digital thermometer around today. Meet the Braun Thermoscan 7. This fancy digital thermometer needs to be placed in the ear to give an accurate reading. Don't worry: it gives guidance so you know you're doing it properly. It also stores the last nine recordings for later reference and its tip warms up before you pop it in the ear. It can be used by the entire family – it comes with disposable tips – from newborns to adults.

It's no surprise to us that this digital thermometer is sold out almost everywhere. Usually, it's sold at Amazon, Boots, John Lewis and more. But right now, the only place we can find with stock is Superdrug. Order online and collect in store now for your peace of mind.
